    this service number 143 San Jose Diridon to San Francisco in the journey is stuck on a red just before 22nd street because there are 3 trains up ahead all stuck and nothing moving.

    i find this quiet annoying when driving for about 75 mins only to get stuck on a red near the end. and to make things worse ill have to do it all again grrrrrr

    I recently purchased this route and it's the first I've encountered to be buggy.

    Same thing happened to me just before 22nd Street (due at 20:55) driving the cab-end 19:38 service out of San Jose, but with 5 trains stuck ahead of me:

    Stuck before 22nd Street stn:
    - #115 Cab-End Baby Bullet

    Stuck after 22nd Street stn, all F40's:
    - #909
    - #908
    - #916
    - #912

    I waited it out (cleaned the house) for two hours and it never cleared.

    Very disappointing as this was the third consecutive service on this route which I've had to abandon. Previously stuck behind one train at a red which never cleared, and just before the the train never recovered from "Bay Area Breakdown".

    Love this route but I'm now hesitant, like you, to commit over an hour to this given my recent luck.

    Same problem for me too. My cab car baby bullet train gets permanently stuck at a red light on service 143. This has been a problem for several weeks at DTG has not remedied it yet. Given this service takes up to an hour to get to this point it is extremely frustrating. The problem seems to be a double headed passenger train a few stations up.

    I also hate how you can't control the HEP from the cab car for the train. Also wanna try to fix those issues? Try to save the game then reload TSW 2020 then load back into the saved game and hopefully the trains are not glitched. I did this and it does fix this issue but it's a 50-50 chance. Otherwise submit a support ticket to DTG support.

    Thanks for your suggestion. I had seen this as a possible workaround elsewhere and tried re-loading the game multiple times to no avail.

    I will raise a ticket with support and provide a follow-up.

    What is disheartening is that I love these trains but such glitches deter me from starting a new service on this route, given that I may be flushing an hour away only to be stuck at the end.

    Any other services on this route with a similar issue?

    Yeah, I agree. The number of glitches in the route's timetables make me nervous about starting a new service on any route.
